I am trying to put together a simple performance mod on my 05 Civic LX?
first of all NEVER EVER BUY TURBOS OF EBAY they are mostly leaky pieces of crap.... cracked and don't spool...
as for the exhaust part... get the RS-R Ex Mag nice sounding exhaust
not a loud fart cannon, its a cat back system. you can hear it on youtube...
... dont add those electronic super chargers they dont do anything,
As for the inake, i would reccomend AEM or injen they are both good and good quality
headers go with GReddy 4-2-1... never DC,, take it from my personal experience, they crack
heres my part list i would reccomend....
1) RS-R ExMag Exhaust
2) GReddy 4-2-1 headers
3) Injen CAI
4) Brembo Break Calipars ( since u want to do the turnpikes)
5)Tein coil over suspension
6)Change your intake manifold ( this is optional) edbrock makes good ones
7)install front rear sway bars from comptech
This list i listed here is all basic...
i would say your horse power may increase by maybe 35hp if that...
well it also depends on how much you have to spend...
you get what you pay for... never go cheap on car parts!
hes going to be spending way more than 1000...
i guesstimate.. at least 3k plus...
if he wants to do turnpikes
hes going to need to beef up his suspension tires/rims
